Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 13; Anal soft rays: 8. The possession of a suborbital flap in adult males and a suborbital groove in adult females separates this species from all congeners except Schistura hypsiura. Distinguished from S. hypsiura by having a more slender caudal peduncle, less than 2/3 of body depth (vs. caudal peduncle depth about same as body depth). It can be further diagnosed from all congeners by a combination of the following characters: caudal fin deeply forked (length of median ray 53-58 % of length of upper lobe) length of median rays 53-58 % of length of upper lobe); caudal peduncle slender (depth 11-12 % SL and 49-63 % of body depth); body with 6-9 indistinct dark brown bars (Ref. 95537).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00631 (0.00296 - 0.01347), b=3.04 (2.86 - 3.22), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±0.3 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (11 of 100) .
